I'd better shell out for some then.

Will it help keep the barrel from getting fouled?

Well. as the cannon cockers say, it's easier to swab out a smoothbore.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Sounds almost burlesque.

I didn't see this post, because on that day I was on my way to attend a meeting chaired by MG George (head of CCDC, and the person featured in the article).

Funding for SLRC is part of my portfolio.  When it was at Dahlgren (about 40 miles away), I had hoped to get down to see it, but could never get down there.  I believe that it's now on its way to Yuma, or it may already be there.  I'm hoping to get out to see a test shot sometime this year.

I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.
